end up defining president obama's foreign policy over the next four years. it's a real challenge, folks, and one that doesn't get enough attention. >>> we're going to stick with the foreign policy theme. this week we're meeting one of our new members of congress. today we're talking to tammy duckworth from illinois. she'll lean heavily on her own military credentials and experience to knock off a tea party incumbent, joe walsh. duckworth is one of 16 iraq or afghanistan veterans in the new congress. and one of the first two female combat veterans ever to serve. she made national headlines when she talked about being wounded in iraq during a speech at the 2008 democratic convention and told the story again in 2012. >> a rocket-propelled grenade hit our helicopter, exploding in my lap, ripping off one leg, crushing the other, and tearing my right arm apart. but i kept trying to fly until i passed out. and in that moment, my survival and the survival of my entire crew depended on all of us pulling together. their heroism is why i'm alive today. >> she lost both legs and part of the

because we've seen already over the past four years what the obama administration's been doing with these air strikes. >> aerial drone strikes aside, does the cia need to pull out at the same time as the military? because doesn't the military help back up many of their operations? >> without a doubt. but the cia already maintains such a strong presence across the region it's unlikely that it's going to reduce that. there's some aspect of the cia's presence that's involved with helping the military, perhaps gathering intelligence precisely for operations that involve troops, but also that's going to shift perhaps to providing intelligence for these types of drones. a lot of that relies on human intelligence on the ground and assets on the ground. it's unlikely that is going to be reduced if the u.s. still feels it needs to have that presence as they've indicated they will. >> does the cia operate in its own kind of bubble? are they going to be able to as effectively bring this human intelligence with less people on the ground? >> well, from a technological point of view, phone i
